A.S. Face 0215: Kyle A Mother’s Hero
Kyle was diagnosed in August of 2011. During his yearly exam his doctor asked if he had any issues and he complained about his knee and lower back. After his explanation of what was going on I immediately knew. It was the same symptoms as I had at his age. I asked his doctor to test for HLA-B27. After an explanation of hip dysplasia, and how over weight kids can have this issue, I asked him to just do the test. 10 days later we had the results. HLA-B27 positive. As of right now recommended treatment is vitamins, moderate exercise and low doses of Nsaids as needed. Eventually he will need to see a Rheumatologist but for now he is ok. As a Mom you want better for your kids. Sadly I passed this illness on to 2 of my kids but hopefully there will be a cure by the time he is my age.
